FAQs

Families can register using the online registration form. There is no cost to attend but we ask you to register to assist with our planning. Updated 10/24: Online registration in now closed. Families can register on-site when they arrive by coming to Family Weekend check-in in Hogan 320 (Fri. 2 - 7 p.m., Sar. 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.).

You will not receive a confirmation on-screen when you submit the registration form. However, you will receive an email with a copy of your registration. This goes to whatever email address you use when registering.

Please contact the Office of Parent and Family Engagement at families@holycross.edu, or at 508-793-3344. It would be helpful to include “Family Weekend Registration” in the subject line of your email. Once the necessary changes have been made, you will receive a confirmation email back from a member of our staff.

There is a preview of the schedule on the Family Weekend website (Schedule tab on left). At check-in, you will be provided a finalized  schedule. There are many activities planned and more will be added so be sure to check-in when you arrive on campus to receive the final schedule.
